And if they don’t find Danish cartoonists and newspapermen to use for this purpose, it is clear that they will find something else to do so.”

    The Hands and Feet of the Bible

    The Bible has life and the Bible brings life because it has been spoken by God.

For that reason among others it is always worthy of our time, our attention, and our dedication.
